It's not so bad. It's one of two GD songs my Mom actually said she liked. That and Casey Jones.

The "Shah of Iran" line was ripped from the headlines. Remember that 1979 was the year of the Iran Revolution. Student radicals stormed the U.S. Embassy on November 4, 1979, seizing 53 U.S. hostages who were held for almost 15 months. Ayatollah Khomeini was made supreme leader in December 1979.
